Day 7 ::: Have you heard of Osuofia? He's a famous Nigeria comedian who is hilarious! I have been watching Nigerian Movies and Soap Operas over the past few days. The big soap here is called Super Story. Terrible title and even worse theme song! I also watched an episode of Nigerian American Idol, which is called "Project Fame". No comment. I also watched a Spanish Soap Opera that had been translated into English for the Nigerian audience. Wow...it was something else. Nigerian television is very simple, very literal, and very exaggerated. I don't quite know how to explain except to use the word "dramatic." I taped a portion of a movie we were watching because it was so funny. This particular movie is called "Osuofia goes to London." It is his first time in a "developed" nation and in this particular piece, he is learning that toilets are not holes in the ground. This is especially funny b/c people in Nigeria do in fact know what a toilet is and how to use one. So its just poking fun at how other people see them. Nigerians get a kick out of it. Enjoy!
